Tyrolean gets a new MD from Lufthansa CityLine

The Austrian Airlines (AUA) subsidiary Tyrolean has a new managing director in the form of Klaus Froese, currently managing director of Lufthansa CityLine.

He takes over the job officially from 1 February next year replacing predecessor Gaudenz Ambühl who is retiring.

Ambühl (61), who was previously on the Board of Directors at the AUA-sister company Swiss has already come out of retirement once to take over the job at Tyrolean. He will now be returning to his retirement after six months in office.

Klaus Froese (49) began his involvement with airlines as a pilot in 1987 as first officer at the predecessor to the Lufthansa CityLine, the Deutschen Luftverkehrsgesellschaft mbH, DLT.

Since 1989 he was flying as a pilot within Lufthansa with Embraer 120 und 190/195 aircraft as well as the Bombardier CRJ 200/700/900, the Fokker 50, the Boeing 737, the Boeing 747 and also the Airbus A320 fleet.

Lufthansa CityLine is a sister company of Austrian Airlines and a 100 percent subsidiary of AUA's parent firm Lufthansa. They have 60 medium and short distance jets and 2,300 staff.

Froese was in charge of quality management from 1998 and in 2006 became managing director at Lufthansa CityLine.
